About me

I am a dynamic junior at Texas A&M University, on track to graduate with a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science in 2026 and a Master’s degree in Computer Science in Spring 2027. Currently, I am gaining valuable experience as a Data Science Intern at Pivotal Research and INTERA Inc., while also contributing as a Software Developer at Teamup. I am dedicated to becoming a successful and well-rounded Data Scientist.

At Pivotal Research, I focus on data analysis and developing machine learning models. At INTERA Inc., I am involved in advanced data science projects, enhancing my skills in statistical analysis and predictive modeling. As a Software Developer at Teamup, I play a crucial role in developing innovative software solutions, demonstrating my expertise in various programming languages and software development methodologies.

In my previous role as a Data Engineering Intern at INTERA Inc. from May 2023 to August 2023, I honed my skills in data extraction and manipulation through web scraping and statistical analysis. I developed visualizations to identify trends and insights related to constituent levels and government guidelines, and created applications used by over 100 clients in Texas and California, showcasing my ability to deliver practical and impactful data solutions.

I also serve as the Projects Officer for the Aggie Data Science Club, where I manage and oversee projects within the club. This role involves leading project teams, ensuring project continuity, and maintaining engagement among club members. I was elected to this position in March of 2024.

I recently had the incredible opportunity to present my “Class Primer” bot to the graduate class BADM 554 at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, focusing on SQL/Database Modeling. This journey began unexpectedly when Dr. Vishal Sachdev discovered my interview through the AI x Education newsletter via Lily Lee; he reached out, inviting me to coach his students with a Zoom talk demonstrating my method for using GPT for learning. I embraced the opportunity, which turned out to be a pivotal moment in my career. The “Class Primer” bot, inspired by Jun Yuh, is designed to revolutionize student learning by automating the “priming” process, leveraging the capabilities of ChatGPT-4. The presentation was a platform to showcase this transformative AI-driven educational tool, which is now publicly available for anyone using ChatGPT-4.

I am also an accomplished musician. I am the first chair and soloist for both the TAMU Wind Symphony and the TAMU Chamber Orchestra, and serve as an officer for Carnival of Animals, a TAMU club that performs music gigs outside of school. Notably, I have performed concerts in Spain with the TAMU Wind Symphony.

My love for traveling and learning about new cultures adds another layer to my multifaceted personality. I approach life with dedication and a desire for continuous growth.
